Original early 1950's British'Middle Parka'. Sateen finish to outer on this one and superb build quality throughout. Very clean for age indeed and recently dry cleaned too. No issues i can find. Comes with separate button on/off hood which is in the more drab non-sateen fabric these parkas are usually made from.
Shoulder seam to shoulder seam: 21 (item laid flat and measured across one side). Pit to pit: 26 (item laid flat and measured across one side) Please factor in the thickness of the jacket/liner and clothes to be worn underneath. Outer shoulder seam to end of cuff: 26.
Back of neck to hem: 34. The mannequin used in the pictures is a standard UK 40. Ideal fit i estimate to be on a modern 42 with clothing.
